Ready to make your hotel room reservation for AnimeIowa 2012? Our room block officially opens on Monday, April 16 at 10:00 AM! So finalize your roomie plans and set your alarm clock! Historically, we completely fill the Coralville Marriott in just a few days, so we STRONGLY recommend that you make your reservations as soon as possible after the room block opens.
Check out the details on the AnimeIowa Location page. If you have additional questions, follow the links to the Room Reservation FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page which is HERE on our Forums. You may also wish to consider the special “extra half-day” option, that allows you to delay your Sunday checkout time until after closing ceremonies (6:00 PM)!
